I can't believe we're here in December, already! This year has flown! I say it every year I know, but 2020 - the year of the coronavirus pandemic has been one of of the fastest I've ever known. The year has been an emotional rollercoaster full of restrictions, rules and lockdowns and so much of our 'normal' has disappeared (for now anyway) and in a way that's made the year pass by quicker. Days out and holidays just haven't really happened as much and the months have just ticked by. 

With Christmas just around the corner, we have something to look foward to, a slice of some sort of normality. Although it's not really normal, as even Christmas has restrictions and rules this year to try to keep everyone as safe as possible. We can choose to mix with two other households between 23-27 December, but even that comes with its risks. It's looking likely that I won't see my side of the family this year as they all work in settings where social distancing can't really happen and we want to try and be as safe as possible. So instead, we are planning to do a Zoom call between us instead.
